Thus is a magnificent hotel.Room was beautiful with magnificent bathroom and service was impeccable and the staff particularly the doorman were friendly and helpful.Limited space for disabled causing annoyance when cars parked without blue badges but again help was on hand to ease any problems.My quibble is why does such a quality hotel find it necessary to charge such exorbitant...

After our round we all went back...

The hotel overall was an excellent experience...

The hotel is fine, not quite as special as I was hoping for. Great place I am sure, if you are retired looking for some cheesy entertainment of an evening.

Beautiful lounge overlooking the sea and we stopped for a cream tea. The scones were hard and dark brown with crusty fruits in them,they resembled rock cakes in texture and taste and although pleasant to eat with cream and jam were not a scone.The jam was liquid and had no strawberries in it. I spoke to the waiter and stated...

We stayed at The Carlyon Bay for a two night break on DB&B terms. Reception was quick and efficient. Our room was a trifle small but very clean and well decorated, and also had a marvellous sea view. The bathroom was very small but had all the essentials. The hotel is keen on energy saving with the result that the...
